Darn it, here we go. Its really simple. ALL COSTS are EQUAL. What would you choose. Don’t make it more then it is. KZ engines are perfect out of the box. My first ICC was a CRS which was out of the box stock for the whole year I had it and I was faster then my mod honda straight away. The modification of engines is not the KZ or any engines fault. Does the honda need to be modified? I guess not, Stock Moto right! Same for KZ. I just won a race on a 2006 Maxter. There where 2002 Pavesi’s and TM k9s that where right there. Unless your top level the whole you need the latest is bunk and you know it. Nevermind this argument, its not going to work. I thought it might be fun Chris, I ran stock moto all of 2010. Good engine, ran great all year, power was good. I’ve owned many KZ, mod honda and stock honda engines so I need now history lesson. Also the parts engine you by from Skark Shifter and put it together is not the same as the national level engines by a builder. Close, sure but I bet there are at least 2-3 hp difference. You know that.
You guys keep sticking your heads in the sand…. STOCK HONDA That means there’s no modifications allowed…. KZ are fast out of the box, but they can be modified within the rules. Currently in the USA, there isn’t a pro level KZ series, and I don’t think there’s too many serious racers willing to get a KZ maxed out. That’s why most of the people on here talking from “experience” say it’s not needed to build one up.
Ask McNeil what it cost to setup a pro level KZ, and what happen to the maintenance intervals, he ran them back when there was a pro level series here in the states for KZ, There is however a pro level Stock Honda series, and plenty of valid info with regards to what a maxed out Stock Honda is.
